comment What does “The Lord said to my Lord” mean in Psalm 110?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. This doesn't show its work, which is a requirement on this site. Don't just tell us what you know, tell us how you know it. Please connect the dots for us, especially since the original text didn't contain upper and lowercase letters.

comment What does “bless” [ברך] mean?
Once you ask about "us", you're moving beyond the original audience of the text and applying this text to modern readers, which is best reserved for other places. Unless you're trying to understand a historical practice? If so, a slight rewording could clarify this.

comment What does “bless” [ברך] mean?
the word will have specific meanings in specific contexts. A good answer will need to address the translation of the word in the contexts given.

you're right, that last part should be in another question, so why are you insistent on including it in this one?

I refocused this on the text, you went in a different direction towards the end that would be best saved for Christianity.SE once you get an answer about the linguistic aspect(s) of the word here. Check out Why can't I ask my 'big question'?

comment How would Elisha plowing with 12 oxen have been understood at the time of writing?
Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics Stack Exchange! Be sure to take our site tour to learn more about us. We're a little different from other sites. We expect answers to be just that: answers to the question that explain their stance and show the work for that position. This falls short of that standard. Would you consider editing to expand this?

comment Who wrote the end of Deuteronomy?
I was curious, I think the Joshua argument is pretty good, but I'd like to read much more before being convinced. Even so, this has my upvote.
